As popularity of James Latham’s high specification door blanks, Flamebreak, continues to grow, the UK’s largest independent timber and panel products distributor, is now offering them directly from stock at every one of its nine nationwide panel sites.
Available as FSC (Forest Stewardship Council), Flamebreak door blanks are manufactured with a special three layer tri-laminated hardwood timber core, which helps to eliminate gaps, rippling and telegraphing. They are also lightweight, and have an excellent substrate for easy machining and conversion, making them easy to handle and fix.The Flamebreak range boasts an extensive list of industry recognised accreditations and certifications including; British Standard BS476 (Part 22 1987) and BS EN1634 – 1 as well as PAS23 and PAS24. Flamebreak door blanks also hold DD171 and BS EN 1192 ratings for durability and wear and tear and have been successfully tested to meet the requirements of the BWF Certifire Scheme as well as attaining BMTRADA Q Mark.
Latham’s Group Manager for doors, Steven Dennard, said: “The benefits of Flamebreak door blanks are there for all to see. They boast a long list of technical and environmental features and weighing in at only 31kg each for a plywood faced 2135 x 915 x 44mm, means a single door blank can easily be worked and machined by one man.”
Flamebreak door blanks are not only technically superior but also aesthetically superior too and can easily be laminated, painted or veneered.
